What Is Love

Locked in a world
We swore we'd never let go
With a promise
We could never keep
Running in the shadows
Recently alone
I beg you to please forget me
But you held your head high
In a wordless stance
Tears streaming down your cheeks
I'd like to capture this moment
But we know I can't
Without pulling you closer to me
I couldn't breathe when you left
I couldn't see their arms
Reaching out to shield
What was left of a broken heart
Tearful disregards
And a tone deaf smile
Eyes glinting like stars
I haven't seen that in a while
Alone in a crowd
Determined to fit in
In that wordless unnoticed way
The way I was before you ever came
Self pity is the reason
My self confidence is undermined
Unable to pick another shining star
From a shining sky
Because you were my sun
My centered gravity
My lullaby
And I take my hand back
With a force I'll lose
When I finally die
Dearest love
I am yours
In every single way
And this is why, my darling
I must take myself away
Goodbye sweetheart,
For by moonlight
You will surely fade
I will wish
Until heaven's bliss
That you had stayed.
